Colomban Cicéron, Game Director and co-founder of Endroad, commented:
We are working with great passion on the Grendizer project, aiming for the highest quality to please both the fans and the new generations who have not had the opportunity to know Daisuke (Daisuke Umon in Japan) and his friends. This is such a rich universe that it deserves the utmost attention to detail. We are all fans of this IP that we literally grew up with, and we are striving to offer players the game they have been dreaming of for decades. We are extremely grateful to be able to work on this IP and will do our best to deliver an exceptional gaming experience.
Details of the Grendizer video game
Based on the mythical anime taken from the Go Nagai UFO Robot Grendizer manga, this new action game will offer players the opportunity to finally take on the role of Daisuke and his robot and experience epic adventures. A unique opportunity to dive into an iconic universe of pop culture, made of courage, betrayal and sensational battles!
The cult animated series was one of the first successful exports of Japanese animation in the late 1970s. The iconic battles and weapons of Grendizer used to defeat the forces of King Vega, the secret base of the villains hidden on the dark side of the moon and the mythical characters of the saga have become pieces of pop culture all over the world.
